been trying to have a campaign that was structured around the idea that barack obama was a nice guy, a good fellow, a good dad and an all-around swell american but that mitt romney thought that he could probably do a better job being president and manager of the economy than he could because they were very worried about not only fending voters had voted for obama in 2008. they didn't want to sound like romney was being a jerk, but they were worried, too, pretty obviously, about what the establishment press was going to say. if romney came out and attacked the first black president on his record and went after him, what would people say? well, that strategy, the latest polling tells us, has not exactly been a bell ringer in ohio. so what you hear from romney is he gets to the must-win. it is an absolutely must-win state for him is this tough new tone, and not only is he talking about the economy as you heard him do there, but guess what's back? the debt clock. they've got the debt clock back, and they're talking a lot about how much president obama's policies cost, they're talking ab

arguments in their case for re-electing president barack obama. i'm suzanne malveaux live from the site of the democratic national convention in charlotte, north carolina. just a week ago we heard ann romney's speech on the personal side of her husband. tonight it is michelle obama's time and her turn. she's not going to have to work as hard to convince people that president obama is likable. check it out. in a recent "washington post" poll, 61% of registered voters said the president seems more friendly and likable compared to 27% for romney. so what does michelle obama need to say tonight to get democrats revved up, convince voters that her husband should get another four years? office? we're going to talk about it, bring in our republican consultant, cnn contributor, alex, and cow c-founder of rebu the dream. good to see you guys both. in person. i love this. cnn grill. likability. you know, alex, you're always talking about i don't have to have a beer with a guy, you know, the economy's really important. but people do want to be able to feel like the person in office gets it, they t

machine, and was taking on john mccain. at that point the obama posters were fresh and new, hadn't faded yet. to some degree we're going to be remind the of the 2008. the comparisons will be made. i don't think there's going to be the same excitement in the convention hall for barack obama that there was last time around. people are going to be asking why that is, and it's going to have something to do with the obama record. it's going to have something to do with the way he's conducted his presidency. that's something democrats are going to have to explain. >> 30 seconds. >> the president was not challenged in the primaries. a new president seeking re-election. if he wins, he will be for the second time truly historic. the last time we elected with an employment rate above as it raying raying. it dropped continuously the year before. a plummet raise has not dropped. it's ticked upped in recent months. if president obama winds, it will be because of demographic shifts, his ability to persuade voters. it's better than the alternative. be historic. >> we will see you both in charlotte. c-s

of virginia which president obama won in 2008 and where he holds a slim four-point lead over his republican rival. romney's visit to virginia comes on the heels of another disappointing jobs report which missed forecasts and showed a decline in the unemployment rate largely because more americans have stopped looking for work. it prompted the republican nominee to take aim at the president's record on job creation. >> with the unemployment level having stuck above 8% for 43 straight months, we remembered that the president promised that if we let him borrow almost $1 trillion, he'd never let it reach 8%. it's been above 8% ever since. this president has not fulfilled him promises. then he spoke at great length and had wonderful things to say at the democrat convention but didn't say what he would do to help people get jobs, come out of unemployment, or get people who are poor back to the middle class. he doesn't have a plan or ideas. we've got to make sure he doesn't have any more days in the white house after january. >> despite slow growth in the job market, president obama has widened hi
a statement in which he issued an apology to u.s. president barack obama and the american people for the attack on the embassy today, saying this was unacceptable and ordered yemeni security forces to launch an investigation and prosecute anybody they found involved in this to the full extent of the law. this was quite worrying today. for one reason, the u.s. embassy compound in sanaa is one of the most protected sites. not just in the city of s aanaa, the capital of yemen, but practically in all of the country of yemen. i've been to yemen several times, been to sanaa several times. i've been to the u.s. embassy. this site is not easily accessible to anybody. i spoke to activists in sanaa who said they were watching what was going on from rooftops of nearby buildings. they say they were absolutely shocked that this crowd, marching toward the embassy, was able to get as close as they did to the main gate and then that they were actually able to breach the compound. they were flabbergasted by this. they can't understand how yemen security could allow this to happen. in the ensuing
